Fee & Payment
If you need to reschedule or cancel our meeting time, please inform me via phone, text, or email within 2 days of our scheduled time to respect both of our time and our relationship. If you cannot attend our scheduled appointment for whatever reason with less than 2 days notice, you will be charged for the session, and a session via phone or video conference at our originally scheduled time will be available for you.
I only accept private pay.
Upon request, I can provide a superbill for you to use with your insurance provider.
Benefits of private pay:
The client determines the length and type of counseling that best suits their needs.
Confidentiality remains between you and your chosen mental health care provider.
Concerns for using insurance:
Insurance providers have the authority to:
-determine the number of sessions they will cover.
-determine the limits of which situations warrant coverage.
-determine what forms of treatment are covered by their policy.
-require a diagnosis that stays on your permanent health record to receive coverage.
Insurance providers are a for profit business, not the mental health professional you sought & hired to support your personal well-being.
Counselors relying solely on insurance receive significantly reduced rates and must carry caseloads at least 50% larger to earn the same livable income.
Increased caseloads perpetuate counselor burnout and may reduce the quality of care for you and other clients.
